That’s huge for the Reds and Jurgen Klopp. However, Klopp, as ecstatic as he is, is level-headed about this milestone. He believes that even though this happened, the Reds can do much better.
“We are not perfect, not even close to being perfect, but we don’t care about being perfect. We just try and use our skills in the best possible way. The boys do that and that is why we have these kind of numbers. It just feels like the hardest work. Now the boys can go away and enjoy their break and come back recharged,” the Liverpool manager mulled.
The game against Southampton was definitely not an easy one for Liverpool – they struggled a lot in the first half before switching up their game in the second half.
“The readiness to improve in the game and learn from the game [is what we had to do to win]. The set-up of Southampton I could not give more credit to. What a strange result in the end. It’s deserved because we score the goals, but what a team,” said Klopp.
“They had too many shots on target and we had to change in the second half. That helped massively and when we are rolling it’s difficult to stop.
“Even when it was 4-0 Southampton did not stop and I have so much respect for that.”
Well, we think Liverpool is doing amazing now!
